What we're about

Seeking anyone interested in getting together with friends (new and old) at a convenient time and place to sit down and read a play! Out loud, without rehearsal (i.e., cold) for no one but ourselves, for fun and humankind! ;) More can be found on this idea here: https://coldreads.wordpress.com/

"We assume parts regardless of age/gender/type, and double up, and swap around so everyone reads major roles. Now and then we stop to “ad lib” (recap, question, clarify, opine, debate, share insights, wisecrack), until somebody says 'Shut up and deal.'" (from the Cold Reads website)

We will select the next play reading from a list submitted by members (so start thinking of plays you would like to read). Roles are assigned at each reading. No acting experience necessary- we're not performing and there is no audience (although, if you have acting experience or a flair for the dramatic, you will not be discouraged from showing it).

*You are welcome to just come and listen, too -- you don't have to read, although reading is part of the fun.*

Discussion, community and either "pot-luck" or access to refreshments for sale are a part of each reading.

We meet on the last Wednesday of the month at 7:00pm at the cafe on the first floor of Mariano's on Lawrence. Hope to see you there!

Reading "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof" by Tennessee Williams

This month, we will be reading the classic "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof" by Tennessee Williams. ***I've been thinking about getting the group going again, but I am making some changes to the formatting of how we do things in order to make it a little easier to run the group alongside my other commitments. Please keep an eye out for an upcoming email from me on how we will do things from now on.
